An exhibition depicting the preservation and development of Chinese traditional woodblock printing opened on Monday at The Prince's Foundation School of Traditional Arts (PSTA) in London. The four-section exhibition, titled "Ten Bamboo Studio Woodblock Printing Art Exhibition," tells the history of ancient Chinese woodblock printing techniques and their development in the West and demonstrates through some 200 artworks the exquisite craftsmanship of Chinese woodblock printing and the profoundness of Chinese cultural traditions. Woodblock printing, which first appeared in ancient China's Tang Dynasty (618-907) and reached its peak in the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), is a technique for printing text, images or patterns. It was listed as an intangible cultural heritage of China in 2014. (Xinhua/Han Yan)
